Boyle (6 goals, $1.2M)
Dubinsky (7 goals, $4.2M)
Rupp (4 goals, $1.5M)
These are the three biggest offenders IMO.
I wouldn't criticize Boyle if he was playing on the fourth line (where he belongs), but as a third line center he's coming up too short.
Dubinsky is by far the most immensely overpaid player on our roster right now. The worst part is he keeps getting chances and keeps missing these opportunities.
I don't even think Rupp kills penalties. For $1.5M he's getting paid to be more than a goon, so if he isn't going to kill penalties he better put the puck in the net more.
Who do you guys think the offensive slackers are?
They're not paying Rupp to score goals. And the goals he's scored have been big.
